April DeConick's New York Times article causes a stir

April DeConick's Gospel Truth, published in The New York Times earlier this week is a model of how to write a clear, informative op-ed piece on a controversial academic subject. It is no surprise, as the T and T Clark Blog mentions today, that it is "causing something of a stir in the blog world". The backlash begins today, though, with robust responses from Marvin Meyer and Terry Garcia in letters to the New York Times, The Gospel of Judas: A Word from the Translators.
